Londolozi Founders Camp is a classic safari camp in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve and provides the perfect location for a sophisticated family safari as it is one of the few luxury camps to accept children of all ages. Indeed, Londolozi will keep all of you busy during your stay: Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve is a premier Big 5 game viewing destination and guarantees excellent sightings with normally elusive leopards a speciality.

Leave at dawn and again in the late afternoon on guided game drives with an expert ranger and tracker in search of the Big 5 and other classic animals - you'll return to camp via a spotlit night drive to tick off some of Africa's rarer creatures while guided walking safaris in between game drives will help you appreciate the smaller and more intricate details of this teeming environment. You could also do a spot of fishing on the Sand River or book a spa therapy to relax your body and mind.

The camp's main area consists of a dining area with a relaxed bar area connected to a thatched game viewing deck and a riverside lounge sala affording excellent views of the river and your surroundings.

For lazy days in the hot African sun, you can lounge by the pool and have a cool drink in the adjacent boma.

You can even enjoy game and bird watching without leaving camp: simply head to the deck overlooking the river and sit with binoculars in hand.

Traveller Reviews

  • Thank you so much again. Everything was great and we loved South Africa. The accommodations were all impeccable with great service. The transfers also worked out great and we found the drivers very prompt and informative. We will definitely refer our friends to you in the future. Hopefully we will also be back and use you again :)

  • The Londolozi experience was the best for me and the family, the staff do a great job!

  • Londolozi was superb, the game drives were great ( saw the big five - twice). Food was exceptional, staff were fantastic.

    Russell Skerman, May 2013
  • Londolozi Game reserve was unbelievable from the beautiful rooms to the welcoming staff to our guide Kate whose knowledge of the animals and love of both them and Africa was infectious. We took pictures that could grace the pages of National Geographic and each of us fell in love with the countryside and the people. I can truthfully say that the service we received in South Africa was second to none and having travelled all over the world to some wonderful places, that I think is really something for South Africa to be proud of.

  • Londolozi was the stuff of dreams!

  • Londolozi was wonderful and remains my favorite game lodge. We had an outstanding guide, who was there during all of our stays at Londolozi. The weather cooperated on this portion of the trip and was beautiful.

  • It is almost unfair to even compare it to the other places we stayed. The room was grand, the staff clearly took pride in their jobs - from our wait staff to the managers - and our guide and tracker were wonderful men to spend time with. They went the extra mile to find us wild dogs and a black rhino - the only animals we hadn't yet seen.

    Leigh Darrin, September 2011
  • Londolozi was really the highlight of the trip. Food, rooms, service, and setting were all perfect. The game viewing was wonderful. We saw all of the big five, three different prides of lions (one with cubs), rhinos twice, multiple herds of elephants, hyenas, hippos, crocodiles, jackals, etc. Our only regret was that we were only there three days.

    Stephen Oates, April 2011
  • Londolozi - the best place and our favorite ! Lodging, the people, food and animals were top notch. It was more than we ever expected. The guides, trackers and staff were knowledgeable and very good.

    Teresa Taylor, January 2011
  • Londolozi was exceptional. Callie, the manageress really went to a lot of effort on our behalf. We were upgraded to Tree Camp and put in an absolutely stunning villa. They could not have done more to make our stay any more memorable. That place knows how to treat customers and I am going to write a letter of thanks to them this weekend.
